A piece of work of the day 32

Festive period 2019 was something very unusual for me, because of the months-long bush fires that flamed up in Australia, particularly east coast and south area over the four states.

All graphics and updates cast by the media were of heartbreaking, and the blaze did not set back on New Years Eve and New Years Day.

Temperature on Saturday and Sunday last week soared to record-breaking high, which coincidentally some source was saying, apart from the subject of bush fires, that the earth took the closest position to the sun in her orbit.

This piece below was drawn while watching the circumstances, with the inspiration driven by my sincere wish of rainfalls and / or something good of element of aqua, embrace all of the burned areas and heal them.   Yep, the motif is completely unrelated to the subject, but this is how I could send my love over.

2019年のクリスマスと年越し、そして新年はこれまでのそれとは異なるものでした。

何か月も続く森林火災がまさに31日から元旦にかけて更に一段と被害が広がり、オーストラリア固有の動物や自然、そして幾つもの小さなコミュニティが燃えて無くなってしまいました。

このパステルは「水」と「悦び」に関するエネルギーを想いながらイメージしたものです。

一見、まったく森林火災とは無関係の絵柄ですが、今猛威を振っているその「火」とは違う水を想う事、そして悲しみや怒りに包まれている今の状況に、亡くなった命たちや対峙している命たちに、癒しの時が少しでもやってくるようにという願掛けの思いを込めました。

Happy 2020 ~ 明けましておめでとうございます ~

Happy new year my WP friends.  Best wishes to you all for 2020 and the next decade.

Sydney missed new years day sunrise.  The beamed summer sun appeared occasionally between overcast, but it was muggy and hot day.

I can not write much at present, but I blessed that I got new years day healthy and safe.

Well, I am going to do more posting in here in 2020.  🙂

明けましておめでとうございます。ここに立ち寄ってくださった皆さんにとりまして、今年とそれに続くこれからの10年が悦びに溢れるものでありますように。今年もどうぞよろしくお願いします。

A piece of work of the day 31

Belated post for Christmas as it’s gone for the year, but I would still like to express my sincere thanks to all of your support and connections you have been with me on here.

Wish you all have a safe and pleasant holiday.

Here is my recent work for Seasonal greeting cards.

Christmas flower is lovely to see and draw.  I think I will draw it again for next Christmas (and I hope I will draw it lovelier).

クリスマスカード用に描いたポインセチア。

クリスマスを過ぎての投稿ですが、クリスマスの有無に関係なく、お一人おひとりの年末年始が安全で健やかにお迎えできますように、お祈りしています。今年もお世話になりました。

A piece of work of the day 30 ~ The Dawn of New Age~

When I had first listened to my friend’s work he composed, it got me an image that lights start shedding in total darkness.

Since then, the abstract image has been left in my head as making it transformed in changing details little by little.

I was going to draw the image earlier but, due to my months-long ‘constipation‘ period,  it finally happened just before year-end.

Silhouette of the bald eagle soaring was not in my imagination at first, but I am very happy now with the outcome in which it’s there .

Anyway, please check his work from here , and please share how you have felt or what you have got as an image with this piece.

元々は、ある知り合いのオリジナル曲を初めて聴いた時に湧いた、漆黒の中に光がさすという漠然としたイメージがはじまり。そこから徐々にイメージが形を変えていった。もっと早くに描きたかったのだけど、表現するという事を億劫がっているうちに今になってしまった。

シルエットになっている白頭ワシは最初の頃にはいなかった。いつのまにかすっとこのイメージの世界にいた。

原曲のリンクも貼りましたので、聴いてみてください。皆さんの中にもいろんなイメージが湧くのではないでしょうか。

The grid of the day ~ 雨を意図して ~

With my sincerest wish of rainfalls on us.

Currently Australia, particularly NSW state in where Sydney locate, have been suffering from drought and number of places have been burned down by bush fires.

I naturally and spontaneously picked up blue-based, but also some reminded me of our Mother Earth.

I have something to ‘talk’ about all pieces, but i am happy that my NZ greenstone and crystal from Arkansas joined the rock formation.

雨よ降れ降れ🎵☂️ との願いを込めて組んだグリッドには、自然と青い石が増えたような。

でも同時に地球そのもの、空と大地と水も色に入って来てくれて、有難い。

干ばつと森林火災がまだまだ続く、シドニーとニューサウス・ウェールズ州に水の恵みがもたらされますように。

Thank you for stopping by.

A piece of work of the day 29 ~ abstract drawings inspired by the grid ~

Oh again, I do not remember when I did this kind of drawing work last time.

This went for a friend’s birthday.

And the grid I introduced here drove me my drawing finger as it gets (yes, my pastel works are drawn by fingers most of part), actually it went OK to express my love to him.

久しぶりのパステルワークを友人宛の誕生日カードに。どんなものを描こうかとすぐにイメージが湧きませんでしたが、こちらで紹介した今回の 石のグリッド から何となくヒントが得られて、このような一枚になりました。

私の友人への気持ちを色で表現したらこんな感じなのだと、出来上がって改めて思いました。

やはり色は楽しい。

Thank you for stopping by.

The crystal grid of the period

This grid of rocks was placed in late October and left it unmoved until now.

I like rocks and minerals to collect and I like playing with them too.  I like making spontaneous grid with the stones picked up randomly.
This layout is one of them in which there are a couple of ‘unusuals’.

Unusual 1.  I have some rose quartz but I usually do not my first choice in playing.
However, for some reasons, I had got my head filled fully in rose quarts pink and gathered all rose quartz I have to place on the table.
I probably needed some graceful energy and rose quartz must be the best rocks holding those soft and graceful energy (in my opinion).

Unusual 2.  I generally keep the stone layouts for several days then deform them, but this one left my regular ‘rock spot’ in my lounge space over a month.

What impression do you have at them?

Do they click some sense in you?
Well, I feel the time to deform comes, I will finally start making a fresh layout with fresh mind tomorrow morning.
石好きな私はその時々の思いつきでクリスタル・グリッドを作り、自宅の居間の片隅に飾っています。このグリッドもその一つ。10月後半に突然柔らかいピンク色のイメージが浮かび、普段あまり選ばれないローズ・クォーツ達を中心に並べてみたものです。
通常であれば、数日でグリッドは解体されるのですが、今回だけは別。結局一月以上飾っていました。
様々なピンク色がありますが、ローズクォーツのそれはとても優しく柔らかいものです。
明日の朝このレイアウトとお別れして、全く違う新しいグリッドを作ることになりそうです。

People Crossing Over The Tram Rails

It’s been quite sometime since I put my last post on here.  

And unbelievably, there is only one month to go till the end of year 2019.  

New tram service ‘Light Rail Sydney’ seems to start this year, for the first time since they had stopped the tramway network service in 1961.

しばらくブログから遠ざかっていました。

早いもので今年もあと残すところ1か月ほど。

今年の締めくくりという事でしょうか、シドニーに新たな路面電車が開通する予定なのだそうです。

写真はシドニー・シティを縦断する、ジョージ・ストリートに設えれた線路とその上を歩く人々。
